What’s a family holiday dinner without a salad that in no way resembles a salad??? Every other day of the year, we mom’s try and get vegetables into our kids, but these sweet dishes that more closely resemble dessert sneak on to the dinner table! This one is delicious with the tartness of the cranberry and green apples being offset by those little white marshmallows!

This is another recipe that my mother-in-law shared with me when I first married my husband. We have had it many times over the years. Of course, the kids love it!!! We snuck vegetables into some of my other recipes in this Thanksgiving series, so if you’re cooking some of those you’ll still sneak some vitamins into your crew!

Cranberry Salad

  • 1 bag fresh cranberries
  • 2 green apples (pippin are good)
  • 3/4 bag  of small marshmallows
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 pints whipping cream

Grind cranberries and green applies together (or mix in your food processor). Mix with marshmallows and sugar. Let stand overnight in refrigerator. Just before serving, whip cream (a little added sugar and vanilla are a good add) and fold into fruit mixture.
